Plaid Paint Brushes
First, start by picking up some baskets from any thrift store or tag sale. We found ours for just 59 cents each! Then, let your imagination take you away with whatever color and pattern you’re feeling. We used some painter’s tape to get those really clean lines. When you finish your design and the paint dries, simply adorn your creation with a little bit of yarn. I am obsessed with yarn at the moment and all the vibrant colors. I’ve been using them a lot in the studio the past few weeks. Let us know how you decorate and what you’re putting into your super fresh holiday baskets!
